What Is Love? Author Unknown

I Saw Two Clouds At Morning, by John Gardiner Brainard

I saw two clouds at morning,Tinged by the rising sun,And in the dawn they floated on,And mingled into one;I thought that morning cloud was blest,It moved so sweetly to the west.

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of the carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the […]

Wilt thou love me, sweet, when my hair is grey And my cheeks shall have lost their hue? When the charms of youth shall have passed away, Will your love as of old prove true? For the looks may change, and the heart may range, And the love be no longer fond; Wilt thou love […]
